Proverbs 18:24 NIV

I went through a particularly difficult situation yesterday. As the day went on it became more challenging. During a lull in the action I pulled out my iPad and sent a simple text to a group of reliable friends requesting prayer. The responses were pretty much immediate and overwhelming. I knew that however things turned out I was leaving this meeting an immensely blessed man. It actually didn’t end as well as I had hoped but my step was light and my spirit was sound. God revealed anew the value of friends who ride through this journey of life hanging with me in the really tough times. My one place of sadness was knowing that the other party involved does not have those relationships in their story. As things should have felt like a win to them they were angry. I have had many difficult episodes in life from the death of the love of my life to health and job challenges. The constant through them all has been Christ followers who held in through those experiences with me. I share today’s devo to encourage you that those people will always be more important than outcomes. Today be that person to others and be sure they are also in your story. #BeTheEdge
